Upcoming Monastic Experience
A Monastic Experience is designed to introduce you to our life in community through a retreat that includes discussion on Benedictine prayer, ministry, monastic life and the history of our community. We welcome you to join us in prayer and at table, in work, in quiet and in social time. Call or email Sister Barbara for information about upcoming date of July 201 in 2013.
All of the monastic experience days begin at 8:00 am - 7:30 pm and, if needed, arrangements can be made for overnight stays if traveling long distances.

Check out the Facebook page for the Benedictine Sisters of Mount St. Scholastica. We have a daily reading from our history these past 150 years. These are posted each day on Facebook. They are interesting and informative so you may want to "like" our page.
